Beta / Can't open XIM APEX Manager
« on: 02:38 PM - 09/13/18 »
I'm getting the error:
"XIM APEX Manager" Beta Has Expired

Pressing OK just closes this dialog box and leaves me on the iOS 11.4.1 Home screen.

I just edited my polling rate from 1000 to 500 to test the difference (my mouse doesn't always poll at a consistent 1000hz).
I was anticipating having to multiply my senitivites by 2, however it feels exactly the same. I've made sure to make the changes on the Logitech software as well as APEX Manager + restart XIM.

Are these Syncronization settings still necessary?
And what about the changes needed for Default to Off?
Default This is the default and is designed to generally work well on all games and matches the behavior of all XIMs prior to XIM APEX.
Common If your game runs at 60fps, try this setting. If switching from Default, divide your sensitivity by 2.
Slow If your game runs at 30fps, try this setting. If switching from Default, divide your sensitivity by 4.
Off Disables synchronization. Use this setting if you prefer to behavior of the retail XIM APEX firmware.

I've read conflicting information about this.

Will it negatively effect XIM APEX tracking if I use the Logitech software to calibrate the mouse with my mousepad?

Beta / 0328 Right stick movement bug
« on: 03:11 PM - 03/30/18 »
I found an odd bug on the 20180328 firmware.

I have buttons mapped to the Right stick: F1 for direction left and F2 for direction right. It seems that after updating from 0303, it doesn't move in a linear path when I have left or right held down. With my hand off the mouse, there is some up and down vertical movement while spinning.

It is especially noticeable when I rapidly tap either left (F1) or right (F2). The movement looks somewhat like a sine/cosine pattern.

Here's a video demonstrating the bug: https://gfycat.com/WeakLiveHorseshoecrab
F1 is binded to Right stick left, and F2 is binded to Right stick right.
You can see the vertical movement jumping all over the place.

Cameras in this game have a locked maximum horizontal angle. When you reach the furthest you can go in a certain direction, this bug shows itself by moving the camera up or down. It seems to be a random direction and random speed.
I tested this without the XIM and it's definitely not a broken game mechanic.

Beta / Switch between BETA and stable versions?
« on: 03:35 PM - 03/29/18 »
I've asked this before but I don't think anyone saw it and I didn't get a reply.

After accepting the TestFlight link and testing the BETA, I have downgraded to compare the two versions. After downgrading, I'm unable to upgrade to the BETA version again without requesting another invite to TestFlight.

Seems like I'm wasting OBsIV's time...is there a better way to do this?

Beta / Firmware 20180321 - Feedback/Issues
« on: 03:18 PM - 03/22/18 »
First of all, I'm happy to see all these experimental features giving our APEX more functionality.
I have two issues/questions needing clarification about the new firmware 20180321 .

1) I read that for synchronization, if switching from Default, divide your sensitivity by 2. What if we are coming from an old BETA firmware, or if synchronization is off. How do we need to adjust our sensitivity? Dividing by 2 and even by 4 still feels way too high of a sensitivity compared to how it was on BETA 20180303.

2) Walk speed: The new amount, 3/4 does not change movement speed while crouch walking on R6 Siege.
I believe that 1/2 was good, but maybe even 5/8 stick would be better (between 1/2 and 3/4). I've suggested this before, but it would be preferable to have the ability to customize walk speed on a global or per config basis.

Edit: After testing further, even with Synchronization OFF, I can't help but notice that aiming feels somewhat delayed/less responsive/floaty on 20180321.

I just noticed that my APEX flashes purple/pinkish lights quite often when I'm playing.

I haven't noticed any inconsistencies with mouse movement when it's flashing; I'm just curious why this is happening and what it means.

More info: 1000hz polling, LED keyboard powered by 5V wall output (so I don't think power is the issue).
Seems to happen when I'm actually playing, not just when the Xbox/XIM is powering up.

Does anyone here actually calibrate their mouse for the mouse pad they have?
How does this change functionality, and is it recommended for XIM?

For those unaware, Logitech and other mouse manufacturers have software that make you move your mouse in an infinity pattern and somehow calibrates for the surface.

??? ::)

XIM APEX Discussions / XIM APEX order of USBs
« on: 11:40 AM - 03/07/18 »
Sorry if this is a stupid question, but does the XIM APEX need to be directly plugged into your Xbox?

I'm currently using:
Xbox --> XIM --> USB extender --> XIM hub

To prevent accidental damage, is it perfectly acceptable to use this setup?
Xbox --> USB extender --> XIM --> XIM hub

Once again, I'm not really sure if this makes a difference in terms of XIM functionality.

Support / APEX Tracking issue with micro adjustments
« on: 08:44 PM - 03/05/18 »
Hi again,
Not really sure if this should go in Support or Feedback.

I upgraded from an XIM4 to an Apex and I'm having a problem I haven't really encountered before.
When I try to make micro adjustments to my aiming, it feels like something is working against me. I'm not 100% sure how to describe it, but EXTREMELY small movements won't make my player move. It seems at one point once I've moved the mouse enough it will jump a lot of pixels.

Really only noticing the problem while aimed down sights, game is Rainbow Six: Siege. Only tested one other game, CoD WW2 and have the same problem but it's hardly noticeable.

- Using G502 mouse @ 12k DPI
- In-game settings are the recommended ones from XIM thread (and same I used for XIM4)
- Mouse and APEX are polling @ 1000hz
- Tested various smoothing settings from 0-20
- Using 8x sensitivity multiplier from my XIM4 settings

Support / [ACTIVE] XIM APEX Detecting same keyboard twice
« on: 05:16 PM - 03/05/18 »
Only have one keyboard and one mouse plugged in.
XIM APEX manager is showing my mouse (far left G icon) and my keyboard twice (middle and far right G icon).

Not sure if it's causing any performance issues, but still seems like a bug.


XIM APEX Discussions / USB Switcher
« on: 08:55 PM - 03/01/18 »
Would it be better to purchase a USB switcher that's powered or does it not really matter if all I'm running to it is a keyboard and mouse to switch between my XIM and PC. I might get a Titan in the future, but it's unlikely.

I'm looking at these two switchers:

Any suggestions?

XIM APEX Discussions / Longer USB cable for the XIM APEX?
« on: 11:11 AM - 03/01/18 »
I'm a little disappointed that the APEX doesn't come with a longer cable like the XIM4 did (the braided one).
I would like to keep a similar setup when I get the APEX, so can someone suggest a USB cable that won't degrade performance? I'm not really sure what's considered "high quality" or data/charge only.


XIM APEX Discussions / Moving XIM4 configs to XIM APEX
« on: 12:23 PM - 02/21/18 »
I currently have the XIM4 and will be getting the XIM APEX.
If I enable the max polling rate on the APEX, what will I need to edit on my backed up configs to make them perform in a similar way?

Do I need to multiply or divide some of the sensitivity values or something along those lines?

XIM APEX Discussions / APEX on R6?
« on: 11:05 AM - 01/24/18 »
Has anyone tried out the APEX with R6 Siege?
How does it compare to the XIM4?

Would be interested in possibly upgrading my XIM because all I play are CoD games and R6.
